immigrant family members from reuniting with their u.s. citizen siblings. this is troubling, because siblings are an integral part of family structure. they support and help each other find jobs, provide both an emotional and financial support, and care for each families. a addition, many times sibling may be your only family member. ar example, i recently met woman named nadine whose brother is her only remaining family member. and are extremely close have been separated for many years. i'm concerned that cases like nadine's will no longer have a meaningful opportunity to petition for their sibling. i would also like to see improvement in the family system to include lbgt families, brought up by my colleague senator franken, and the children of filipino world war ii veterans, and we are joined at this hearing by some of our filipino world war ii veterans who have been separated from their children. mr. chairman, i look forward to continue discussions and the opportunity to improve this legislation. there have already been comments on the visa program, which i support, and i yield th
